Disciplinary action - drivers filming with phones

3 September 2012

Fleet World has reported that company car and van drivers have been labelled ‘dangerous’ by police after being caught filming and photographing a crash on the M1 in Northamptonshire. The ‘rubberneckers’ were using mobile phones to record emergency workers, who were trying to free a trapped woman, while they drove past on the opposite carriageway.  They are now facing disciplinary action from their employers after police officers attending the scene became so appalled by their behaviour they decided to film what they were doing.
